Markham, ON – July 25, 2012 – With less than four months to go until this year’s Induction Banquet, the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is requesting the donation of moto-related items and collectibles for our always-popular Silent Auction.
“The Silent Auction is one of our most popular fundraising programs and is an integral component in our fundraising strategy” explains Hall of Fame Chair Kellee Irwin. “As always, we are reaching out to the fantastic people and companies in the motorcycle industry and community to secure donated items for this year’s event”.
The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is seeking a wide-range of collectibles and items, both endemic and non-endemic to motorcycling. They should be new and unused unless they have historic significance, such as a race-worn riding suit as used by one of our current or future Hall of Famers, or an autographed period-specific photograph or poster. Gift cards, travel vouchers, and hotel nights are always popular as well. If you have items that may not be suitable for the silent auction, but would still consider donating them to the Hall to help raise funds, please contact us to make arrangements.
GP Bikes of Whitby, Ontario has already stepped up and donated two Bell Helmets for this year’s auction. These are no ordinary helmets however, as they have the signatures of 16 Honourable Members to date, and we expect that number to rise to more than 30 as we continue to collect autographs throughout the summer and fall.
To donate items for the Silent Auction or for more information, please contact Daniel Tessier at email@example.com or at 647.920.1334.
The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Reunion is the annual signature event of the Canadian International Motorcycle Heritage Museum Foundation (CIMHMF), a non-profit association with charitable status. It is governed by an independent board of volunteer directors located from coast to coast and sponsored by the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC). Founded by Bar and Hedy Hodgson in 1999, the CIMHMF preserves and promotes Canadian motorcycle history for the benefit of the motorcycling community and public. Since the first induction banquet in Toronto in 2006, almost 100 distinguished motorcyclists have been inducted into the CanadianMotorcycle Hall of Fame.
